"Medium to deep ruby, the 2014 Syrah OM has a singular nose of salted licorice, black olive, rosemary-crusted lamb, saline and even an orange peel hint with coffee bean, baked black cherries, blackberry preserves, warm blueberries, cocoa and peppercorn.  Medium to full-bodied the palate is intense and concentrated with wonderful layers of fruit, savory tinges and spice, framed to plush, ripe tannins and great freshness, finishing very long and layered. Yowza!" (Drinking Window: 2022-2040) - Erin Brooks

This five-year-old wine is showing very well right now, indicative of how the cool climate style evolves into even more interesting flavors with time. Aromas of black-pepper sauce, charred lamb gristle, roasted chile peppers and black raspberry lead into a palate that's spicy with pepper, herbal with pine needles and eucalyptus and framed by underripe wild berries.

Production notes
  • Grapes were hand-harvested
  • 100% whole cluster fermentation
  • Like always, we relied on the native yeast that the grapes carried from the vineyards to complete the fermentation
  • We hand punched each fermentor twice a day to enhance the extraction of colors, tannins and flavors
  • After primary fermentation was complete we extended maceration for up to 30-35 days to further extract color, tannins and flavor
  • Pressed with ultra-gentle stainless steel basket press in an 8-hour cycle
  • Aged in neutral oak for 22 months prior to bottling, no fining or filtering with two rackings before bottling.and then another 2 years in bottle prior to releasing.
